I've busting ass on the truck trying to get it ready for the Cleveland Autorama. So here's a little update. I decided to try out my long forgotten paint and body skills on my dash. I priced out all the materials for HOK red candy flake. I knew it was going to be pricy but I had a hard time swallowing almost $400 just to paint my dash. Well I started to do a little research and I found a thread on here about Kylon Glitter Blast. I sprayed the dash with a silver base then 4 coats of the Glitter blast. It leaves a very rough finish before the clear. It took about 12-15 coats of clear to get it smooth. The finish product actually looks really good and the total cost was under $100. The drawbacks are the uncatalized clear is soft and it seems to keep shrinking. I wet sanded the dash to help smooth it out and then dumped another 3 heavy coats. I wet sanded it again and hand buffed it out. It was perfectly smooth then after a week it started to look orange peeled again. So I let it sit for over month and sanded it and dumped more clear on it. Then I let it sit for another week before sanding and buffing, so we see how it holds up. If I did it again I'd spring for real clear. But it was an interesting experiment. I also changed out the mufflers from the ones I built last year. The ones I built kept cracking the welds, breaking and rattling. So, I cut out a crossmember and switched over to 3-1/2" glass-packs. It's a much cleaner setup and hopefully no more rattling. Why didn't i think of this last year!! It would of saved me a ton of work.
